Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That: Addressing Racism and Personal Identity on College Campuses
With more students of color attending colleges and universities every year, schools such as Centre need an updated lens to talk about race and diversity on campus. This participatory workshop breaks down stereotypes, uses ‘conscious comedy,’ and engages students, faculty, and staff in new conversations about race, identity, and privilege. Using videos, break-out discussions, and facilitating honest conversations, students will be given social tools to deconstruct interpersonal, as well as institutional patterns of oppression, so as to heal and proactively address concerns as young agents of change. The Convocation will be led by members of the musical groups Las Cafeteras and Orkesta Mendoza as part of GlobalFest.
